Yeah I know that but there is a aftermarket part vac makes to eliminate it I guess here is the link

Now, THAT`S a stupid-ass product for a street car if I ever saw one....it essentially gives you a situation similar to having bad VANOS seals, i.e., you have to lock the cams in the fully-advanced position to take advantage of it, thereby causing a "runs-like-sh!t" condition below 3500 RPMs or so. This is a product for engines that live *strictly* in the top half of the tach, not for street cars.
